5th place in Getting Ready
The WPJA contest judges presented Eduard Gebel, a Russia wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
- Reminiscent of classic documentary photo essays this photograph nicely captured a relaxed moment before the wedding when members of the wedding party are absorbed in their own preparations of getting ready.
Wedding photographer Eduard Gebel, was awarded 5th place for photo 883516 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2012 Q1 Contest.
